The Mission Volunteer office of Global Ministries is offering virtual mission discovery events in 2021 for anyone interested in learning more about volunteer opportunities in the U.S. and around the world. 

Volunteers join in God’s mission to make disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world. “Even in a virtual environment, this dedicated time will equip participants to have a better understanding of the volunteer network offered through Global Ministries,” says Una Jones, director of Mission Volunteers for Global Ministries. 

During the virtual discovery events, participants will receive an overview of the basics of volunteer service, learn about different ways in which they may serve and engage in conversation with the Mission Volunteer and United Methodist Volunteers in Mission (UMVIM) staff. 

The two-hour events will be offered four distinct times so participants may attend when the time best aligns with their schedule. The events are scheduled for: 

  • Tuesday, March 2, 10 a.m.-12 p.m. EST 
  • Thursday, March 4, 5-7 p.m. EST 
  • Thursday, June 3, 3-5 p.m. EDT 
  • Saturday, June 5, 10 a.m.-12 p.m. EDT
